Awesome!I’m super picky about my Bluetooth speakers. I used to have a wonderboom and was happy with it until it finally croaked. I wanted something with long battery life, that was waterproof and decently rugged, and that had good sound quality. I initially bought another wonderboom but hated it! I did tons of research because I needed to replace it with something. I bring my little speaker everywhere and use it all the time. I’m so glad I gave this a shot. It’s perfect for my needs. I expected good sound quality, but I think that the sound quality on the Beosound Explore is *great* when you consider where it’s coming from. Everything is super balanced, and the app is useful if you want to do a bit of “fine tuning” to the EQ. It charges via USB-C. And I love that it comes with a little strap and carabiner. I use that all the time, actually, and it’s super convenient. The design and craftsmanship on the whole is stunning, and something I really appreciate. I feel like the machined aluminum casing probably lends to the sound quality this little thing can produce, but I’m not a sound engineer so this is just speculation. I got this for a steal of a deal on prime day – I think I paid like $130. For that price, I don’t think there’s anything better. If this speaker had a microphone, I think that would take it to the next level and make it worthy of some extra cash, but it’s not something I really need. My only two gripes are the design of the top – it collects water since there is a lip around the edge. The other is that it did sound a little “tinny” once when I probably turned the volume up way too much on one particular song – by way too much, I mean all the way up, like 100%. So unless you frequently do that, you’ll probably never experience it.

Size does not matter, there it’s settled.Great sound, even though I’ve taken bigger poops than this thing. Right out of the box, connected it up. Note for those who use equalizers in their software, I had made adjustments to mine a while back but did not realize the settings stay even though the window is not open. At first I heard a lot of crackling noises depending on the song and was ready to return. Turning the EQ off made a huge difference, sounds great. I live in a 1000ft house and this thing is clear as a bell everywhere. Have to agree with another user, songs with a lot of bass just wont sound the same.
WinnerAfter demoing almost a dozen different speakers during the pandemic, this one wins for spacious sound, accurate reproduction, and you won’t believe how durable and timeless this product feels in your hand (vs plastic).
Great sound and easy to use!Overall great sound and easy to use. Bought a second to pair. Satisfied with the quality and reliability as of now. Only had them for few months.

This is the best Bluetooth speaker I’ve purchased.This speaker is amazing. I got it on sale. The price for this speaker I feel is worth every penny. The speaker does have weight to it. Not too heavy but because it is made out of quality metal it adds weight compared to cheap plastic ones. However that weight provides better sound since there is no rattling like plastic speakers. It’s a great size and looks amazing wherever you put it. It performs great in small rooms but in large rooms if you put it towards the center of the room it really fills the room. The sound is incredible for something so small. The quality of the sound doesn’t change as you turn it even all the way up. I was really impressed at what a clean sound it has. I do move it from room to room and bought it primarily for around the house but have also used it outside and taken it with me. Because it’s metal and looks so good and I want to keep it that way when putting it in a bag I put it in a small case type bag. However I haven’t been overly careful sign it around the house and even dropped it and nothing happened to it. The strap is well made also and really convenient and looks good because it’s well made as well. I had high expectations because the company makes great products but it even surpassed those expectations. I get endless compliments about it and have had friends order one right after seeing and hearing it and they were surprised at the price not being much higher. You will not regret buying this speaker.
You pay the Brand. A nice product with some flawThe sound is good, pairing is easy. You do not see the battery level like you usually do on iPhones with BT devices. Pretty little device with a nice metal touch.

Solid Purchase!Pros:- the brand- price (if it’s on sale for $130)- most versatile speaker I’ve found (light weight, can hang on a back pack, 100% dust and sand resistance, water resistant except for diving, can be dropped in a river, on concrete, and sand dune and it doesn’t matter, treated aluminum making it very scratch resistant)- sounds very clear (instruments, vocals, and bass are all very separatedCons: – could be louder and have more bass (however, at this size being louder and having more bass is basically not possible. Also bass can be increased in the app and it doesn’t drown out the vocals like most equalizers do. For perspective, at full volume in a medium sized room me and a friend cannot really talk to each other and hear what we’re saying without yelling)

It Will DoThere are alot of options for portable speakers out there around the $150 range and here are my thoughts on a few:UE Boom 3 – sounds tingy (couldn’t see much positive after that)JBL Flip 6 – truly waterproof, have submerged completely in the pool and still works, often on sale, not going to break my heart if gets banged up. bigger distinction between audio segments vs Flip 4 (personally I’m a JBL fan, have lots of their products, IMO the best for sound the amount spend)Bose Soundlink Flex – compared to earlier Soundlink models, it cheapened on the material. no EQ option in app. it beautifies the sound especially the midrangeBang & Olufsen Beosound Explore – really like the anodized aluminum exterior, due to color of speaker, controls are hard to see in dark, agree with other reviewers, bass is lacking even adjusted via app. midrange sounds good. however highs seems to be a hit or miss depending on the song/singer

Decent sound quality, sturdy, and no intrusive microphone!This is a very decent speaker – easy to use, has a good sound quality, physical robustness, decent battery life, and, most importantly for me, no microphone.
